  1. Wow. 60,000 hits a month at No Minister. While some might be bots and spam, just goes to show number of comments bears no relevance to size of audience. I find having to re-input all my details to comment a bit of a pain but I visit daily for the variety of posts. The style of some of the language is most amusing.
